Where to Find 1" 'Plugs' for Headliner Holes

In the process of adding deck organizers, and I will be drilling 6 holes in the headliner, for each one, to make it possible to place backing plates / nuts underneath the deck.

The holes will be somewhere between 3/4" and 1" or so wide.

Any ideas where to find some type of plugs to put in the headliner holes??

Home depot had some metal ones, but were only 5/8", and were not stainless. Prefer white plastic, if possible.

Something like this must be used in construction industry, or RV industry, etc.

Home Depot usually carries the plastic plugs in the S/S & specialty fastenings carousel, near the rest of the conventional fastenings (nuts, bolts, nails).
PM me, if you want me to send some from Canada.

Thanks for the reply Gord. I am actually in Nova Scotia! I went to Home Depot today, and was in the SS section. I only saw metal plugs up to 5/8" there. I was thinking that maybe plugs for a different purpose would be easier to find.

Just found some at a hardware store, used to plug holes when insulation in homes, etc. Going to have a look!

I'v found 3/4 and 1" dome headed wooded plugs in my local hardware store. I would think that most wood supply places would have even larger.
